Further Defence Cuts Threatened – Official – the pound now buys fewer and fewer troops.

October 2017 – a UK pound (old or new) bought 100 soldiers of the Battle Squadron and its Epic Battles.

Mid February 2018 – the same UK pound bought you only 70 troops.

The Epic Battles are now slightly smaller. Watch this space for Further Defence Cuts. (February 2018) 

Poundland Defence Forces Update late 2018 

Mid to late 2018 – The Epic Battles tubs of 100, sorry 80, sorry 70 figures are now none!  Now is the time to invade Poundland … other than a few jointed 6 inch action figures, which don’t really count.

Pound Land is now defenceless. They have no troops left.

Do not be alarmed – these penny dreadful figures can be found in various packs online if you search.

The only Pound Store figures in Pound Land (UK) were these chunky blind bag / box Awesome Little Green Men – I bought three £1 boxes ‘on spec’ (December 2018) to see what these were. Going going gone January 2019 … now series 1 is ‘unavailable’ these collectibles are worth £5 to £6.

What each £1 box might contain … the expensive future of collectible toy soldiers?

 Awesome Little Green Men Series 2 features the inevitable Zombies … but only available in the USA.

The moral of this story about Pound Store Plastic Warriors: Buy ’em when you see ’em! They may not be there next time.

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures. I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures. Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules. To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...
